We’re back at our desks after meeting many great customers, partners and supporters at the Legito PowerUp 2022 conference. It was my first in-person Legito event, and here’s what I discovered:

#1 The No.1 tip agreed upon by people who have deployed Legito is: start small and simple, and wait for the success that will see users asking you for more. Improve and extend based on feedback – repeat.

#2 The Legito user base is international, but the stories, challenges and opportunities are remarkably similar wherever you are based.

#3 There’s valuable data generated from your everyday transactions and processes – but most organisations are not fully using it. It’s time to start mining business intelligence.

#4 Most organisations prefer to build a ‘centre of excellence’ (COE) for automation – it’s the best way to leverage automation investments across the whole enterprise. The COE can then work with subject matter experts in different teams to enable quick-start projects.

#5 Get vendors to do a demo using your process and documents – it’s the best way to see the solution in the context of your business, and you can test which vendors have agile solutions.

#6 We are blessed to have customers who are so enthusiastic to share their stories and their ideas. On the group events, it was like the delegates were all from one company – an onlooker wouldn’t know which people were from Legito and which people represented customers. It felt like one team.

#7 Prague is a must-visit city. Noel O’Connell seems to know more restaurants and bars than the locals – and they were all good.

There’s lots to be done but plenty of energy to get it done.
